Critic Reviews for The Mysterious Benedict Society: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (6)

Manfredi and Hay aren't afraid to create a series that both praises the intelligence of children while also admitting that being a kid is weird and confusing.

The first two episodes have a start-and-stop energy, with more tests leading to more tests, and it gets more and more tedious.

As Mr. Benedict, Hale infuses his trademark nervous energy with sincere care for the children, always sure to find the humor and heart in each scene.

Marvelous adult ensemble and cast of diverse talented children are a delight. First half of season is charming, with story of very smart kids, but adult problems get nasty.

Hale may be brilliant as the narcoleptic genius, but the child actors are the real heroes, especially the scene-stealing Kessler.

Rather than being something for children with a few jokes the grown-ups will appreciate, it has the same youthful joie de vivre as a film like Moonrise Kingdom, but with the vivacity and energy of Spy Kids.
